“Taxing the wealthy and corporations” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast PDF Print E-mail

taxing-rich-2024MILWAUKEE - We review Citizen Action of Wisconsin’s 40th anniversary events in Milwaukee and La Crosse this week and preview the third event in Green Bay next Thursday evening. President Biden’s new budget was released and includes increased taxes on the wealthy and corporations to fund our nation’s vital priorities and a historic investment in reducing child poverty. We encourage Governor Tony Evers and Legislative Democrats to follow the President’s lead and introduce their own visionary progressive tax plan to properly fund public education, health care and child care. We call out the latest China bashing with an effort to go after TikTok for sin being committed by American tech corporations and right-wing billionaires.

In Wisconsin, the state Senate ends its session by firing Evers appointees, approving terrible constitutional amendments, and failing to fix the counting of absentee ballots, creating fertile grounds for conspiracy theories to flourish. We encourage our listeners to help us talk to the 2 remaining Democrats in the State Legislature to co-sponsor the BadgerCare Public Option bill. We mention the Republican state senator who joined Democrats in voting against a toxic transgender sports bill after listening and hearing the deep harm the bill would do to the kids. We hope this kind of listening and being open to change or persuasion will return to state government. We also reveal big businesses’ lobbying effort to block the DNR’s ability to permit factory farms in Wisconsin.

40years-caw-2024MILWAUKEE - We reflect on the 13 year history of the Battleground Wisconsin Podcast and how it is an important piece of Citizen Action’s history that is at the heart of our 40th Anniversary events that start next week. We are celebrating on Monday, March 11th, 6pm in Milwaukee and Wednesday, March 13th, 5:30pm in LaCrosse.

We thank State Representative Kristina Shelton for her years of public service in the state legislature. She is a unique progressive voice and we need more like her. We remind our listeners that the next 2 months will determine who is running for the many new seats in the Legislature, a generational opportunity for progressives to reshape governance in the state. It is up to all of us if we will seize it!

Following Super Tuesday and with Thursday night’s State of the State, the general election has commenced this week. Biden vs. Trump II is upon us.

Gov. Evers: Expanding Wisconsin's Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit for Working Families PDF Print E-mail
Commentary
Written by GOV Press Wisconsin   
Thursday, 07 March 2024 14:14

childcare-dropoffMADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address on signing Assembly Bill 1023, now 2023 Wisconsin Act 101, which expands the current child and dependent care tax credit from 50 percent to 100 percent of the federal credit, helping reduce the tax burden for families struggling to afford the high cost of child care and care for adult dependents. Act 101, similar to a proposal Gov. Evers recommended in his 2023-25 biennial budget proposal, provides tax relief to over 110,000 Wisconsin taxpayers at an average benefit of over $656 per filer, totaling nearly $73 million in annual tax relief. More information about Act 101 is available here.

immunity-blues-2024MILWAUKEE - On a special edition of Battleground Wisconsin, Matt is away on a field trip to North Carolina, and our producer, Brian, has a speaking role for the first time in our 13 year history.

Robert and Brian dig into the latest Trump-McConnell packed U.S. Supreme Court political intervention on the presidential immunity case. Will it replace America's founding axiom that nobody is above the law with a 21st Century version of the Divine Right of Kings? We also look deeply at the results of the Michigan Presidential Primary across the freshwater pond. Does it mean that Biden is losing the election on the thorns of the Gaza dilemma? Turning to state news, Governor Evers unveils a rapid response plan for the rash of hospital and clinic closures in the Chippewa Valley. Does it get to the heart of the problem with commodified and profit-centric healthcare, or  is it putting bandages on an infected wound?
